But Tensin Gyatso doesn’t know the details, because that person won’t be him, and that person isn’t talking to him!
Source: VOA interviews Dawa Tsering on the Dalai Lama’s Reincarnation The following is the conclusion of the article:
Dawa Tsering (达瓦才仁 – the Dalai Lama’s representative in Taiwan) expressed that His Holiness the Dalai Lama put forth that he wanted a “win-win” on the Tibetan issue. He said that if the Chinese government couldn’t accept even this kind of “indulgent” attitude, the Tibetan people then just didn’t have any other choice but a “state of sharply pointed (尖锐) opposition,” and that this kind of “confrontation” had no benefits for either side.
He (HHDL) said: “No matter whether we’re speaking from the POV of the Tibetan people, or that of ethnic Chinese (worldwide), or that of (mainland) China, the Dalai Lama’s existence is a win-win for both sides, or else it’s win-win-win, but in any case winning in common. If the Dalai Lama can’t solve this problem while he’s still alive, there’s only one final solution, and perhaps it means that everybody loses, but since everyone is competing, (the issue becomes) whose loss is most disasterous.”
((For this translator, the issue has become, “when each baseless speculation is more disasterous than the one before it, how long can that series of speculations become before it kills the entire article? -vshr))
This negativity on the part of Tensin Gyatso, about THE MOST highly loaded issue in Tibetan culture, is certain to plunge the Tibetan community to new depths of despair, perhaps motivating even more incidents of self-immolation by monks in Tibet. Tensin provokes all this stuff automatically without even thinking about it, because that’s where the depth of his mind lives. He loves political drama, and so he automatically anchors on anything that will produce this effect. That has had certain powerful and sometimes beneficial effects, but again, this just isn’t the mind of Chenresig at work here.
I’m certainly not a Tulku, but in Tensin Gyatso’s shoes, I could certainly come up with something more beneficial to the Tibetan people than this message of despair, and here it is:
1. The Buddha Has Come Again
His name in this life was Meher Baba, who was the fourth coming of Gautama Lord Buddha. The second coming of Buddha was Jesus Christ, the third coming was Mohammed the Prophet. The reason that the Tibetan people have had to suffer exile and the destruction of most of their homeland, their sacred Dharma, and their traditional culture is that Jesus Christ visited Tibet during the so-called “lost years” of his young adulthood, which are not recorded in the Christian Bible, and he found that His previous teaching as the Buddha had been made into an elitist production by the Tibetan lamas, who refused to share it with the Tibetan commoners. When Jesus Christ objected to this, the Lamas threw him out of Tibet to protect their totalitarian theocracy. The lamas’ rejection of the then current Buddha resulted in the terrible karma that the entire Tibet Tibetan people is now suffering at the hands of Communist China. The Jews also rejected the Christ for very similar reasons, and that is why they suffered the Holocaust at the hand of Hitler’s Third Reich.
May God save us all from rejecting whatever Saints, Masters, and Avatars He may choose to send us!
2. Communist China is about to Fall
However dreadful the individual and/or group karma, the expiation of it does come to an end, and this time is now at hand for the Tibetan people.
As the Trump administration has accurately observed, the current regime in China is unstable. I don’t know exactly when it will finally fall, but certainly “within the forseeable future.” Since Xi-Dada has decided to declare himself Emperor by effectively throwing out China’s Consititution, when this government falls, what will tend to be set in motion is the dreadful dynamics of civil disorder that have almost always accompanied dynastic succession crises in China, and these once again may include civil war and the partition of the country along ethnic lines.
Whatever happens, I think that, for the Tibetans in exile, the best preparation in the present is to develop and accentuate strength and courage by actively engaging martial arts and military training, in whatever formats and contexts these are available to each Tibetan male, from traditional martial arts to service in mainstream military services of other established countries. In other words, Tibetans, get ready to occupy and hold territory by exoteric mainstream means. Forget “wrathful practices.” Such practices were a mistake from the very beginning, and they are utterly useless in the modern era. But martial arts can become the preliminary stage of Yoga in the general case, and military training builds character and leadership ability.
3. Buddhadharma Pervades All The Vast Reaches of Space and Time
When Communist demons eat Buddhadharma, it only poisons them, and then they get stupid and crazy, curl up, turn green, and die. Apparently, that is the only way they ever learn anything, and it’s really too bad, but let’s not even try to deny them the only learning process they are ever going to accept, OK?”
Meher Baba said, “Now all the streams (of the traditional lineages) have run dry, and the Ocean has to rise and flood them again!” The Ocean to which He was referring is His universal spiritual transmission in this, His Avataric Cycle, which is scheduled to last for something like another century. During this time, empowerment through lineages is depreciated because all the empowerment you’re ever going to need is right there from the Buddha Himself. Just take Refuge with Him and keep pure Precepts and Vows. You can do that either with His traditional names and forms, or with his present name (Meher Baba), it makes no difference to Him. Whatever works for you, He will go along with that. Meher Baba is an absolutely “individual service” Avatar, the first one on record, please! He promised to help each of us each in our own individual way, that has absolutely been my experience with Him, since first coming to Him in 1968.
Also please note that one thing Meher Baba absolutely disapproved of was “fighting wars in My Name.” Another such thing is claiming the final spiritual hegemony of only one of the major religions, all of which were, in fact, established by this very same Person. He said, ” I will put them together like beads on one string” (as opposed to homogenizing them all together into one chaotic New Age beach party, all in the name of Unity, please!) Or, to quote Lord Krishna on the perils of that kind of “Unity”, “The Dharma of another is dangerous.”
With my blessings to the Tibetan people in general, including their “Dalai Lama.” But with that Nihilist view of his, which is one of the worst heresies in the Buddhadhama, I doubt that Tensin Gyatso has much longer to live in this life.
Tibetan people, I can guarantee you, without any possible shadow of a doubt, that there WILL BE another real reincarnation of Chenresig as the next recognized Dalai Lama. That person will be discovered by real orthodox and existing Tibetan tulkus, and WILL BE given the rearing and training appropriate to his spiritual status, and in His maturity HE WILL guide a new and free Tibet after the demise of the current Communist rule. This has been revealed to me by the Buddha.
From this very seat, and by His very Blessing,
Maitreya Meher Namo Namo,
Vishveshwar Bodhisattva, Maitreyayana 2nd Patriarch
